Quote# 84510

Our intellectual, cultural, and political elites are today engaged in one of the most audacious and ambitious experiments in history. They are trying to transform a Western Christian republic into an egalitarian democracy made up of all the tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth. They have dethroned our God, purged our cradle faith from public life, and repudiated the Judeo-Christian moral code by which previous generations sought to live.

"...egalitarian democracy made up of all the tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth."

And that is bad... how, exactly?

Good!

Yay!

I'm trying to figure out the identity of this "western Christian republic" about which he speaks.

Sounds like a good thing to me. You are just sad that people can live long happy lives and not be slaves to your sky fairy.

Um... yeah Pat, that's exactly right. Our FOUNDING FATHERS were trying to do just that, create an egalitarian democracy without religious - especially Christian - dogmatic influence.

Yes, we're finally moving forward. Yay for America!

Can we now put your ilk on trial for treason?

Yeah? SO?!

Only a fundie could find something wrong with a tolerant egalitarian democracy.

Godless heathen

How is this a bad thing?

Tatch

Oh noes! Those damn colored libruls want our society to be EGALITARIAN! Towards everybody! Like the founding Fathers intended!

How these people can claim to be patriotic is beyond me.

According to Isaac Asimov's Book of Facts (1979), an Assyrian clay tablet dating to approximately 2800 BC was unearthed bearing the words "Our earth is degenerate in these latter days. There are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end. Bribery and corruption are common."

They are trying to transform a Western Christian republic into an egalitarian democracy made up of all the tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth.

Sweet! Where do I sign up?

They have dethroned our God, purged our cradle faith from public life, and repudiated the Judeo-Christian moral code by which previous generations sought to live.

Awesome! Your god's a dick, your faith is useless, and the Christian moral code, while having quite a few good things to say is mixed in with some absolutely terrible things.

EDIT: Also, Pat Buchanan? Damn, that's retro. When did he become relevant again?

The US was never a "Christian republic". Sorry.

Aside from that, I can't think of a single bad thing about what you said.

damn straight! go humanity!

In the true words of a fascist, Pat.

We get it, Pat. Democracy bad.

Doubting Thomas

Where is this Western Christian republic you speak of? The United States has always (supposed to have) been a democracy made up of all the "tribes, races, creeds, and cultures" of planet Earth. Or I guess someone's not heard of the "melting pot" idea.

I wouldn't use the same words as Mr. Buchanan, but yes, I agree with him.

As a self professed member of the intellectual and cultural elite I think he described what's going on very well.

Nuts to you, Pat.

So? Speaking as a left-wing Atheist who lives in the very secular UK...:

It really takes a guy of Pat’s character to consider an “egalitarian democracy made up of all the tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth” to be a bad thing.

"and repudiated the Judeo-Christian moral code by which previous generations sought to live."

And so have you, Pat. You wear blended fabrics, eat shellfish, and haven't stoned a disrespectful child (that I know of.)

Your God still has his throne in your Church, he just has no place in public institutions and publicly funded projects.

P.S. I find it amusing that Pat is railing against "Our intellectual, cultural, and political elites." It seems to me that intellectual and cultural elites actually means smart and educated people. So Pat is arguing for leadership by stupid ignorant people.

So in other words, America being a melting pot is bad, and you want only white Christians. GDIAF.

"They are trying to transform a Western Christian republic into an egalitarian democracy made up of all the tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth."

You realize that's what made America the super power it is, right?

The FUCK?

I know that the Nazis and you Dominionist types think that the whole "historical revisionism" thing is just WONDERFUL, but SERIOUSLY?! At NO POINT in our nation's history were we a "Christian Republic"!! We are, and ALWAYS FUCKING HAVE BEEN, a "egalitarian democracy made up of every race, creed, and culture on earth"!!

Fuck off, you god-bothering totalitarian twat.
